Join us for the first event at Downtown Cary Park!

After more than 20 years of inspired dreaming and planning the Park is finally ready to welcome you inside.

Downtown Cary Park, a seven-acre urban park located in the heart of downtown, is celebrating its official opening by hosting a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Sunday, November 19th!

With plans for dignitaries to be in attendance and Cary Town Council to deliver remarks, this event will officially commemorate this important moment in town history.

Throughout the day attendees can enjoy activities such as live performances, a Bandit Flight Team flyover, arts and crafts, synchronized light shows, food trucks, Park tours, and more.


To celebrate this momentous occasion there will be activities and programs throughout the Park from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Park will be open regular Park hours from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. A full schedule for the day is forthcoming.
